NBC's Ratings In the Crapper, As Usual

via @benk84's excellent news-fest, NBC continues to be America's lowest rated network.

NBC, after being heartened by some long-sought success this past fall, has fallen into a deep midwinter freeze.

The network has badly stumbled recently, hitting its three lowest viewership levels for a traditional television season in the past four weeks, the Nielsen ratings company said. The only exception came the week NBC televised the Pro Bowl.

...

Yet the depth of NBC's recent troubles has to be disheartening.

...

Thirty-three other broadcast programs had bigger audiences than NBC's most-watched show last week, "Dateline NBC."

Dateline NBC is your most-watched show? Dude.

I keep saying: Let's hang this admiral, to encourage the others.

I have to make one exception: Daniel Knauff (I think that's his name) is doing a Dracula series for NBC, filmed in London (I think) with Jonathan Rhys Myers*. He's actually a conservative and has said so on-line and has caught grief for it.

So I'd break embargo for that.

But otherwise.... I don't know why Limbaugh and Levin don't start echoing this idea.

A complete (except for Dracula) embargo of the network.

A shot across the bow for all others.

Let them know what can happen when you push us too far.

* Not Jonathan Rhys Davies like I wrote, who was Gimli and Sallah and would not make for a very good Dracula.

So I confess to watching some Chicago Fire, cause one of the guys on the show is hawt. But the huge problem with it is how they have to shove every liberal canard down your throat every episode. For example one episode had the firefighters and a teacher complaining about the city health insurance plan. Now, there is a lesbian couple who is being sued for custody for their baby by the one woman's husband (who she abandoned when she was 9 months pregnant to get back with her lesbian lover). I will lay out good money that they spin it as lesbian women being oppressed.

38 The piece from Politico is beyond ridiculous. It's in the "44" section and is titled: "Conservative Justices skip State of the Union." by Byron Tau.

Seriously, how is this idiot not fucking fired immediately. To somehow imply that the reason the so-called conservative justices didn't show because they disagree with zero is about the epitome of dishonesty in "reporting."

ALITO'S MOM JUST DIED. SCALIA HASN'T GONE TO A SOTU SINCE 1997. THOMAS DOES NOT USUALLY ATTEND.

58 OK, so I'm looking at primetime cable news ratings.

Hilarious stuff.

I looked at Monday and saw these numbers for CNBC primetime going through the roof, nearing FOX.

Then I saw it: "DOG SHOW" Ah.

Piers Morgan loses to Dr. Drew (on the supposed secondary HLN) easily on the demos and just barely ekes him out overall. CNN generally does about 60% of MSNBC which does about half of FOX's numbers.

Do you know what really crushes the competition? Fox and Friends. They do about 180% of Morning Joe's 25-54 demo and about 250% of the overall rating.

I can't stand the show, but we talk about Morning Joe all day long and it's almost irrelevant. Well, they do crush CNN's morning show, so there's that.

89 The only (remotely new) show I like is last man standing. If I didn't have a daughter probably wouldn't. it's funny though.
My wife likes Smash. But she missed the season premier so maybe not.
She used to like SVU but mostly for Christopher Meloni and rapists getting their just reward.
Can't think of a single NBC show other than those.

115 Way back when, I freelanced as an office chick at NBC Atlanta.

Suffice it to say, I was a lib, and even I was shocked at the slanting they did locally.

The fat guy I worked for hit on me, and I told him "no." He made my life miserable until I left. He'd even met my then boyfriend, future husband.

Cesspool. The whole outfit.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at February 13, 2013 08:25 PM (UOM48)

116 Another thing working against this boycott idea is that the digital cable guide thingy and DVR means I don't normally even know what channel I'm watching. I start at channel 500, scroll till I see something interesting, and click watch.

I had to check just now to know I'm watching the Big 10 Network. I wouldnt even know that was a real thing, except they show college wrestling a lot.

So, instead of say, boycotting McDonalds, where you have to actively pull into the lot with the big ass golden arches out front, you have to actually seek out the channel you're avoiding.

Really not trying to be a sour puss, I just think its very difficult to pull off on a large scale. Wanna boycott your local hardware store? Doable. This? Maybe not.

173 First off we need to find out which of their advertisers are in the weakest shape economically and rank them in order from most vulnerable to least.

Second we start a campaign against the weakest ones in the herd. We conduct a traditional boycott but we also throw in legal attacks against both the company itself and anyone in a leadership position with the company.

Then as soon as we get the first one to fold we move up the line to the next, we let the momentum build from one to the next.

We also need to be ready to go after any new company that tries to fill the void instantly.

Comcast bought out GE so they own the entire network. Expect to see them
charging you a fee, like ESPN, to get MSNBC and CNBC even if you don't
want it. Pay for View for a view you don't want, but is bundled into
your bill

There is more than one way to skin a cat/sucker.


Posted by: Billy Bob, Pseudo Intellectual at February 13, 2013 08:42 PM (wR+pz)

If you have cable or satellite, you pay for MSNBC and CNBC. NBC/Universal charges each carrier a fee for each subscriber to whatever package their channel is on. ESPN gets about $5 a month per subscriber while MSNBC and CNBC get probably about $0.15 per customer.
Sports is THE big business of television.

Posted by: Ashley Judd's Puffy Scamper, formerly MrCaniac at February 13, 2013 09:13 PM (Zd/NW)

230 It would be easy for me to 'boycott' em. I still grab Meet the Depressed once in a while because it is important to keep an eye on the enemy's movements. But I don't watch anything else there and for that matter avoid all of NBCU because they took the HD feeds away from my HD HomerunPrime. SD sucks. Paying for 'Free HD' and not getting it sucks harder.

So lets burn NBC down to the ground, good riddance. But don't think the other will learn, they know they are making decisions that are causing their decline and don't care. Politics trumps everything, even survival. They figure the government will subsidize em when things get really bad.

And forget a conservative alternate network or buying out one of the existing ones when they get in enough trouble. Can't happen, would never get cable carriage. While most systems will keep CurrentTV's feed after it changes, they would drop a conservative switching network or station in a heartbeat. You couldn't even pay for carriage like the damned shopping channels do. The only reason FNC is on is Fox has enough other lib channels and more important, sports nets, Murdock can leverage em.

No one will ever trust hannity and the rest of the fox crew after the network trotted out Morris and his bogus stats on the presidential race.

Darned tootin' they do. If you have a cable company DVR they know when you record, when you playback. They know which commercials you skip, what parts of the show you rewound for a second look. They are in your living room.

I use a MythTV so they only know what I recorded, they don't know when or if I playback. And for that (and it being opensource and unable to promise to honor kill bits, no copy bits, etc.) I don't get 'premium' programming. And 'premium' is being defined downward on a regular basis. Chiller Oxygen SD are now 'premium' along with all NBCU HD programming other than the two broadcast NBC stations I get.
